ChocoCookie Bowl Oatmeal

Day 5 and still going strong. How could I not be with meals like ChocoCookie Bowl Oatmeal, I mean c’mon!  I am loving this plan.  I am not weighing myself til the 1st. But I am starting to feel a difference in the way my clothes are fitting.  I wore a skirt to church on Sunday that I couldn’t even get over my hips a few weeks ago.  Yay!   🙂

I did my first ‘E’ aka, ‘Energizing’ meal this morning.  I messed up and used the almond butter I have when I made it.  Not sure why I read the ingredients while taking care of it but I’m glad I did!  It has organic unrefined cane sugar in it.  Now, that might not raise a red flag for someone who is at goal weight and just wants to eat healthy.  But I am no where near goal weight.  And while it only had 3g sugar in it, they were all from that organic unrefined cane sugar.  So I gave that to the hubs to eat (I HATE throwing away food) and I made a new batch of…. ChocoCookie Bowl Oatmeal!! OMGoodness!!!  It is sooooo good!!! Like I could eat this every day good!  Not quite as good as a no-bake good.  But if you can’t have a no-bake this is a close second good!!  😉

So glad I decided to try this for my first ‘E’ meal!!  It was fantastic!  I did tweak the recipe a bit, so I will share the tweaked recipe with y’all.  It was so thick and rich, with a deep chocolate flavor… PERFECT!
